Virgo Health

Virgo Health is an award-winning global healthcare communications and medical education agency comprising specialists with some of the best skills, experience and knowledge in the industry. We take the greatest pride in delivering human insight-driven, ground-breaking and award-winning health communications that make a real difference.

Our manifesto is Being real, Being relevant...Being Human.  Why? Because healthcare is an industry with people at its heart. Everything we do through communication is about helping people make better decisions about health and wellbeing. Being Human means communicating in a personalised and authentic way. It means recognising what people really think, believe and do. It means understanding our clients and audiences as individuals. It means working together with conviction, integrity and passion to achieve exceptional results.

Our UK HQ is in Holborn, London, with offices in Central London, New York and China. Through our partner Golin’s network, we can support clients in over 50 markets worldwide. Our approach means we can give our clients the best of all worlds, all over the world. We have expertise in running large-scale global and regional programmes – our team goes beyond borders, fusing world-class know-how with the local low-down.

Our team works across four core divisions and is supported by The Pharmacy, a unique team of healthcare specialists focused on brand and design. The Pharmacy dispense best-in-class creativity and design, using their expertise to bring insights and ideas to life, from concept to delivery to earn you attention across earned, owned and paid channels. Our work in this area has trebled over the last two years, as we have broadened the types of brand creative, motion, animation and design work we deliver.

Since 2015, Virgo has been named the SABRE EMEA Healthcare Consultancy of the Year, the PRCA Dare Consumer Health & Wellbeing Consultancy of the Year and ranked 13th by Great Place to Work (medium sized business).

Networks

OUR PARTNERS 'GO ALL IN'
In July 2012, Virgo Health became part of Golin and therefore the Inter Public Group's (IPG) network of agencies.

Golin was founded over 50 years ago by a young PR maverick who had spotted a nascent chain of hamburger stands and had a big idea. As courageous as he was innovative, Al Golin placed a cold call to McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc and a client/agency relationship that has endured for more than half a century was born. Since that day Golin’s reputation has been one of an innovator and leader in progressive corporate and consumer communications that ‘Go All In!’
